A new report on blood borne viruses and sexually transmitted infections (BBV and STIs) has been published. This report presents an epidemiological summary on HCV, HBV, HIV and other STIs and focuses on the impact of interventions on preventing both infection and associated disease, highlighting key trends and identifying areas for priority action.
Additionally, a new resource - the Sexual Health and Blood Borne Virus (SHBBV) framework data portal - has also been launched making data publically available. This initiative brings a wealth of information together in a format which should allow users to easily monitor Scotland’s progress nationally and locally against the Scottish Government’s SHBBV framework outcomes.
The report and portal are available here: http://www.hps.scot.nhs.uk/bbvsti/shbbvframeworkdataportal.aspx
